Today’s Obama Poll || Black, Hispanic Support Falls

President Obama’s approval ratings among his core constituencies of blacks and Hispanics has suddenly declined, according to Gallup, but it’s unclear why this has happened.

Though majorities of blacks (85%) and Hispanics (54%) continue to approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, his ratings among these groups slipped in March and have set or tied new lows. His approval rating among whites, at 39%, remains above where it was in the latter part of 2010.

Obama, elected to office with strong support from minority voters, has averaged better than 90% approval among blacks, and 65% among Hispanics, during his term.

Of course, the danger for the president is not that he’s going to lose either of these groups – certainly not African Americans – but that they won’t get to the polls for him in the numbers he needs to overcome his unpopularity among others.

This explains Obama’s trip last night to kiss the ring of huckster Al Sharpton – speaking in New York City before the Rev’s National Action Network. Or perhaps Obama showed up to collect the $1 million in back taxes owed by the NAN or the separate $1 million owed by Sharpton himself.

H/T to Andrew Malcolm’s Top of the Ticket, where I first noticed the poll.

Here’s a Gallup rundown of Obama’s approval ratings among various groups “based on aggregated data from Gallup Daily tracking in March, including more than 15,000 interviews with U.S. adults.”

  1. That so many are sooo sure that MrO will not lose the AfAm vote is racist in the truest sense of the word. Blacks will vote for MrO simply because he is Black assumes the the AfAm community looks only to skin color and not character. DrMLK prayed that one day White America would judge a person on their character and not their skin color.
    There have been indications that the Black community feels they can get more accomodations from a guilty White President, because MrO has ignored them and their agenda (whatever that might be).
    By standing alone with the Black community, the Hispanic amnesty proponents and the Unions, MrO has carved out the rest of America from his former base.
    Not a good plan.

    • If Mr. Obama addresses a racist, anti-Semitic, anti-caucasion, anti-Christian group like the National Action Front – Al Sharpton’s cartel – things are very bad for his campaign. I can’t say they won’t get better; once the liberal MSM jump on the Obama bandwagon (again), the poll numbers and everything else will rise dramatically. Trump’s right about one thing: “Name one thing he does well? One thing? Obama campaigns like a champ. Like a champ! Thats the only thing he has done well.”

    • Sorry my friend, but the black community will vote for Obama, not only because they share his politics, but in many cases because he is black. It’s a fact, and it’s not racist to say so.

      • Keith,

        Your right as rain.

        It is sad that black Americans vote along *racial* lines … it was something MLK fought against – and SRDEM mentioned earlier today: we are to be judged by the contect of our CHARACTER not our color. There are millions of blacks who are racists and need to be educated out of the militant racism they are brought up in, the very ghetto’s in NYC and Chicago where they learn it (and from people like Sharpton and Jackson).

    • Ninety % of AfAms voted for Obama bec of his politics? Right. The t-shirt “My President is a BLACK Man” showed up after the election because of his policies? The New Black Panthers went to an election polling place because of O’s policies?

      The REALITY that AfAms voted for Obama because of his race is racism “racist in the truest sense of the word,” as you so eloquently put it.

  2. You will find those numbers much lower when Gallup (and other liberal pollsters) actually start polling working African-Americans and African-American middle class parents and business owners. The non-working groups will *always* vote for Obama; they will be trucked to voting centers from churches, ACORN offices (that are still open) and various senior centers around the large cities. WSJ did a story on Gallup and various other “pollsters” and of course, we’ve known it all along: they are skewed left. Tell me something I don’t know.

  3. Hypocritical blacks would be offended if called out on their support of the president simply because he is black. Racism at its best, Do as I say, not as I do.
